Cuprosklodowskite, Schoepite, Brochantite
Musonoi Mine, Kolwezi, Western area, Katanga Copper Crescent, Katanga (Shaba), Democratic Republic of Congo (Zaire)
Small Cabinet, 8.5 x 5.3 x 4.5 cm
STRIKING, EXTREMELY RICH combination piece from the famous Musonoi Mine of lustrous, green, acicular cuprosklodowskite crystals with the RARE, bright, lemon-yellow uranium oxide schoepite and nicely accented with dark green brochantite. Just for the C-sklo, this is a nice showy specimen, but the schoepite association is rare in both its richness and its beauty.
